Hey Pomcats! We’re back again with a ‘Short Rows’ episode (which are our mini bonus podcasts) because sometimes there are just so many fun knitty things we want to share with you! While Lydia is in Austin with Meghan shooting Spring 2017 (more news on that very soon!) Sophie is joined by lovely guest host Amy Collins.
Make sure to download the Soundcloud app if you want to listen on a mobile device, or if you subscribe to Pomcast on iTunes it should appear on your device now! All episodes of Pomcast are also now available on Stitcher too. And while you’re having a listen, why not rate us or even leave a little review – thanks!
This time next week it will be the Pom Pom Christmas Party – have you got your ticket? And did you see our blog post about all the exclusive treats that our stall holders are bringing? We’re also excited about all the beautiful things that our sponsors The Fibre Company, Fig Tree Yarns and John Arbon have generously donated for the goodie bags. Make sure you’re one of the first 150 people through the door if you want to get your hands on one!
This episode we have two interviews – the theme of which is catching up with Canadian Pom friends!
First up we have Fiona Alice, the designer and author of Take Heart. We interviewed Fiona last year in Pomcast 19 when her book was just about to be released, so a year later we find out what adventures she’s had since and her plans for 2017!
You might have seen Fiona’s recent takeover on the Pom Pom Instagram account and her picture of a Take Heart hat in progress – here’s the finished thing! If you’re planning a knit from Take Heart too, make sure you join in with our dedicated knit along on the Pom Pom Ravelry group.
Every project entered into the FO Thread will be entered into a prize draw in January and we have three prizes up for grabs! Two skeins of the gorgeous Hand Maiden Lady Godiva used in the book for the Caswell Bay hat and mitts, Sweet Georgia Yarns Trinity Worsted used for Martinique Beach (pictured above) and a skein of Illimani Yarn Silky Baby Llama used for the cover star, the Queensland Beach headband.
Amy is ready to cast on her own peachy version of the Caswell Bay Hat in Viola Mooresburg DK – which nicely leads onto our second interview! In the autumn Lydia make a trip to Canada to see Emily Foden, the talented dyer behind Viola.
We chatted to Emily in Pomcast 17 last year, find out how her dye studio in Mooresburg is taking shape now! Below is Lydia’s maple leaf yarn she dyed with Emily.
As always we love to hear from you folks. You can either email us podcast(at)pompommag.com or join in the chatter on our Ravelry group. We’ll be back with the last pomcast of 2016 at the end of December, so prepared to be festive!
